Hosea 4:6 ESV My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:19 ESV
2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

FURTHER EXPLANATION OF INTENT: This training is designed in a way that reveals to those who are saints *accepted The Lord Jesus Christ as Savior of our soul, know who and what we fight off, daily…thus, we are saved to bring others to the LIGHT OF CHRIST, but we are ineffective if we fail to study God’s Word. Hebrews 6: 1-3 The MSG (The Message) “Grow up in Christ”
SKEPTICAL (s0-called) God-Believers: Some people say the Word is not necessary and you do not have to read it, “the Bible is hard to read,” “I am so busy that I do not have time,” Why read a book that was written by men”
DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS (IF NO SHOW): Joshua 24:15 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW) 15 But if you don’t want to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Even if you choose the gods your ancestors served on the other side of the Euphrates or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live, my family and I will still serve the Lord.”
To address these comments, I will sum it up to say:
We read the BMV License Manual and take the test in expectation to pass it and become licensed so we are legal and do not subject ourselves to dealing with the police.
We study in school and retain information to get good grades, we even read our Employee Handbook and we make sure we fall aligned with it to avoid termination and understand our rights as an employee,
We read and follow MapQuest and Google Maps to get to destinations we have never been to or ones we forgot some parts of the directions,
We read cooking instructions to make sure we get the end result to look like the box and we want it to be edible and taste good, we obey traffic signals and traffic officials,
We read MediaTakeOut, WorldStarHipHop, TMZ, News – all to find out what’s going on
We even read and respond to texts…why is it hard to read and follow God’s Word? We are lazy, lackadaisical! We simply DO NOT WANT TO LEARN ABOUT OBEDIENCE AND SUBMISSION TO GOD’S HOLY WAY OF LIFE
We just know what we know and do not want to grow, but we want God to give us everything, Shame! People of God need to be willing to read, pray, retain, fast, meditate, worship, praise! How can you really thank God without knowing how great He is, aside from your blessings!
Romans 8:17 NLT And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.
Mark 11: 22- 26 NIV “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23“Trulyf I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” 
Ephesians 6:12 Common English Bible (CEB) 12 We aren’t fighting against human enemies but against rulers, authorities, forces of cosmic darkness, and spiritual powers of evil in the heavens.
Proverbs 2:6 NLT For the LORD grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Ephesians 6:10-18 The Message (MSG)
